You can say whatever you like about Michael Moore, but you have to acknowledge that he does a fantastic job keeping his name in the papers. The controversial filmmaker used his Bowling for Columbine Oscar speech in 2003 to promote an agenda, which tied neatly into his very next film, the record-shattering Fahrenheit 9/11.
Just as timely, and an even better film, was his plea
for health care reform, SiCKO. And now, on the eve of one of the most important
elections in the last 50 years, Moore is back with a new film called
Once again, Moore has hit on a story that's already in
the headlines: How do you get young people involved in the political process?
Moore has answered that by going directly to the new wave of voters. Slacker
Uprising covers Moore's 60-city tour, which included scads of college campuses.
And to draw in even more of the 18-21 year old set, he's appealing to their love
of technology by offering the film free, by downloading it at
Slacker Uprising site.
You can also check out a bunch of clips on the site
before you download the whole movie, like this one featuring Eddie Vedder.
